Softboxes tend to be a lot bigger than umbrellas, so if your space is limited, umbrellas might be the better way to go.

Softboxes also tend to be more difficult to adjust (size is a factor) and setup (assemble), but also tend to produce a softer light than umbrellas.

For a good reliable studio strobe and all the accessories, you might want to look at the offerings at Alien Bees or White Lightning (both manufactured by the same company).

I have been using White Lightning for the better part of 20 years and I can still get spare parts for my old units.
